Huge fall with the big flake almost in my hand on first attempt.

Ground up. Plenty of pads, yet somehow also not enough...takes the piss even as a highball, it's a long way up. Climbing is fairly straightforward but there's a lot of air beneath you. The line is unarguable. Psyched.

Not the best warm up...

Big thanks to Rob for the beta and sea of pads! :)

Ground up. Wanted to do this for years, as it really is a striking - almost perfect - line, with an easy(ish) start leading you to difficulties just as things start to get challenging. That said, it's the height that is the real issue - 6C can feel pretty 7B when you're up there! That said, there's no way it's anything more than 7A (but what a 7A!!!).

Climbed like a tool!

Wasn't overly bothered but after everyone else did it I was urged to give it a go and with the amount of pads it was too tempting not to. Took a while to commit/do middle crux move then before I knew it had done the tricky move to the penultimate pinchy layaway. Didn't feel as though I had it well and felt spanned out so tried to drop off but landed badly and smashed my arm into my knee. It's very swollen now but thankfully not broken!! Will I be back???

Retroflash, bottled years ago. Satisfyingly positive at height.

Looked at this for so long, so psyched to get it done. Got matched on the pinch ground up but got scared, checked it on rope and did it next go.

Pretty scary solo again! Took a BIG lob off this while trying to down climb after getting scared right near the top! Super route

Ground up, second go above two pads. Jumped off the first time to test the fall. Amazing line and pretty easy really, in no way is this font 7B. E6 and home in time for lunch... yes please.

Checked crucial runner placement first. Short but intense...
